Full steam ahead for station restoration

Full steam ahead for station restoration

Ahistoric local railway station is the recent recipient of a $1000 donation from the Kalangadoo Farmers’ Market committee.

Former stationmaster and honorary curator Peter Savage has been refurbishing the old Kalangadoo Railway Station turned museum since its official closure in the mid-1980s.

Mr Savage has also assembled an impressive collection of railway memorabilia from Kalangadoo and beyond.

He is currently wanting to fix up the original wooden framed windows of the building, to bring them back to their former glory.

Built of stone in 1907, the railway building and land is owned by the local timber mill.

Among the recent callers to the former railway station have been Catholic pilgrims including the Bishop of Ballarat.

The Kalangadoo Farmers Market is held each Saturday at the one-time Uniting church and hall.

Profits from staging the weekly markets are shared with local groups and charities.
